Hi, Iím new to this site but since I have a few questions I decided to start my search for answers here..
I have a 10 gallon freshwater tank stocked with:
2 male Dalmatian Balloon Belly mollies
6 female Dalmatian Balloon Belly mollies
One of my females gave birth to fry a month ago (I saved 6, they are in their own 5 gallon) ..
Recently Iíve noticed both of my males fighting over this particular female, tonight I caught one of the males nipping at her. I know that these fish breed like crazy, but I have a few questions.
1. Could this female be pregnant again?
2. She has a tiny black dot on her anal fin, is it true that this is a sign sheís due soon?
3. Should I keep her separated from the males? (Iíve tried this method before simply to give the poor girl a break but for some reason my two males only want her, none of my other females).
4. Are there any other ways to tell she is pregnant? Balloon belly mollies are very tricky to identify as pregnant.
